Kobo Glo vs PocketBook
Kobo Glo's revolutionary ComfortLight illuminates the screen with a soft, adjustable glow so you can read any eBook any time of day under the perfect light — no lamp required. Because Kobo Glo’s advanced high-res XGA Pearl E Ink screen doesn’t use a glass overlay for its front light technology, there’s never any glare, even in the brightest sunlight.
PocketBook - the best choice for reading professional literature, periodicals, work with graphs and tables including PDF and Djvu. PocketBook is perfect for reading both at the workplace and at home. School and college students will appreciate e-reader of such a format.

08.04.15. Kobo unveiled new e-Reader Glo HD to take on Kindle Voyage. Kobo’s new Glo HD e-reader will boast the claim of highest resolution for the lowest price when it hits the market on May 1 for $129.99. The newest piece of hardware from Rakuten-owned Kobo offers 300 ppi pixel density on a 6-inch display, which matches the screen on the $199.99 Kindle Voyage in terms of resolution, and which should mean extremely crisp, pixel-free rendering of text. In fact, both the Kobo Glo HD and the Kindle Voyage use e-ink’s Carta screen tech, which means text rendering similar to what you’d get with a super high resolution e-ink screen like those found in iPhones and modern Android devices, albeit using the low-power e-paper tech that displays in black and white and is better suited to a dedicated text reading device.
